A cool cocktail mix with a serving of Lucille Ball, a splash of Carrie Bradshaw and a Mae West Twist. Shaken not stirred and served up, of course. Chantel started her life of comedy in the back of Buick; just about the time her family traveled across America to move to the great state of Oregon.
Always witty and always astute this young girl turned from street kid to non-famous blogger in a mere 27 years. Mediocre grades in high-school left her with no choice other than to marry her drug dealer boyfriend and shun her small town “Birthplace of U-Haul” for a slightly bigger town across the freeway. In that five years of her life there she gave birth to two ungrateful children, worked in a bowling alley and drove a 1972 Camaro.
It wasn’t long after another failed relationship that Chantel set her sights on the big city of Vancouver Washington. It was there that she found her greatest love; drinking red wine alone and in the dark. She moved on quickly from Vancouver to Portland Oregon where public transportation is a plenty for drunks and where her un-fulfilling writing career began. As a writer she had an un-famous blog where many tens of readers came each day to track her daily drink and pill count.
After her mother’s death Chantel wrote a novel which is still yet unpublished due to its horrific writing and cruel unwarranted rants on racism and gender. A little skill she picked up in the Liberal University she didn’t graduate from. After Chantel’s children came of age she quickly kicked them out of the house and moved to San Francisco with her unemployed boyfriend and needy dog. She found there was never a city in the world as welcome to a racist Liberal as San Francisco.
There she started a comedy club so her boyfriend would have legitimate excuses not to do the dishes and she could watch as others climbed ahead of her for fame and fortune. She writes, produces, performs Stand-Up & Storytelling and, promotes events. Interviews with for Pop Rock Candy Mountain.com: Zach Galifinakis, Andy Kindler, Chris Hardwick & Laurie Kilmartin.
